New 124 Spider/New Member - Solihull, West Midlands
« on: January 06, 2019, 06:31:51 PM »
Hi, picked up my first Abarth in December - had a great time at the Bicester Heritage Scramble today - an objective view! the best sounds of the day, Abarth's
I will really appreciate any tips and tricks for the 124 and hope to meet members at future events

Hi Ian and KP61 , welcome along to the AOC.  Enjoy your cars and have lots of fun. Hope to see you both at some events during the coming year.
On a more serious note,  lots of Abarths are being targeted and stolen in the Midlands area, please guys....make sure you have added security on your cars. My 695 XSR was targeted this saturday in broad daylight in Birmingham, luckly they were spotted and chased off, but they did get into the car, so please take extra care.
Regards Neil.

Geoff  the 595/695 range aren`t keyless entry. I believe they are using some sort of electronic unit to open the cars and then start the cars by using the OBD port.
Luckily no damage to the car.   I heard last night that another 695 went missing from Staffordshire area around 9.30pm.  Anyone driving an Abarth really does need to up the security .
